Hi I'm Isabella DiBenedetto

I enjoy reading books by Dan Brown, I snap a few photos here and there, Kenny G. and his saxophone keep me calm, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a convert to the church and also a return missionary. I served in the Ecuador Guayaquil North Mission in 2014 and learned so much while I was there. I have one amazing older brother and two loving parents. I'm a college student who enjoys indie music and smooth jazz. I'm half Venezuelan, part Italian, and part Chilean! I always think my life is extraordinary no matter what my circumstances may be.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because my life has been illuminated by the truth of the teachings of Jesus Christ! As I listened to the Mormon missionaries that visited me, as I attended church weekly, and as I watched the members of the church live their beliefs I began to feel in my heart and know in my head that this was the true church of Jesus Christ. It is organized the same way He organized His church when He was on this earth and it is now guided by His direction. There is a hymn that says, "sweet is the peace the gospel brings" and I almost feel as though that's an understatement. I will never be able to do enough to repay my Father in Heaven for how He has changed every sadness I've felt in my life to peace and joy. Believing in Him and His Son is the foundation for joy and incomparable satisfaction! I'm a Mormon because I have never been happier or more able to confront my challenges. Though I may experience heartaches and all kinds of disappointments in this life it will always be marvelous to me because I have the one thing that with bring me joy in every situation. I would be nothing without what I know now.

How I live my faith

Simply put, I try. I try to do all things that my Heavenly Father asks of me. As my relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have strengthened I've found that I'm much more willing to submit myself to whatever They see fit for me. Amazing enough, I have felt an incomprehensible amount of peace in my life since doing so! My life is better than I ever imagined it could be and it's all thanks to Them. I trust them with everything I am, everything I have, and everything I ever will be. I know that Heavenly Father's main preoccupation is our happiness, because that's all I feel when I follow Him and His Son's example.
